Ulster is a land rich in the relics of prehistoric man. From the age of ice and mammoths, to the time of the earliest farmers and the craftsmen of the Bronze and Iron Ages, an astonishing array of artefacts and archaeological remains has come down to us. The past is gradually yielding up its secrets as more and more sites are excavated and scientific techniques are developed and perfected. Michael Sheane follows the archaeological trail across Ireland in search of the first Ulstermen, and casts new light on the folk legends of Emain Macha and the Uluti.
Michael Steven Sheane was born in England in 1947. He was educated at Larne Grammar School and Orange’s Academy, Belfast, a mixed Protestant and Catholic college, and attended Trinity College Dublin. A man from Ballygally on the Antrim Coast, he now lives in Antrim. His hobbies include stamp collecting, photography and walking. He contributes to press, radio and television on Ulster affairs. He also writes for Ireland’s Own, and now combines writing with business.
